Methamphetamine and Real Estate

For property owners, the sale of a stigmatized property may become difficult, or result in loss of property value. Future owners can be adversely affected in a number of ways as well, from suffering physiological ill effects or having their personal belongings become contaminated, to facing foreclosure when forced by state regulations to comply with costly newly-imposed clean-up standards.

Citizens need to know not only about the physical effects of the drug, but the other drastically dire and distressing consequences to their communities and possibly their own personal safety, as well. It is of utmost importance for everyone to learn to recognize the signs of meth usage, the indicators of a meth lab or waste disposal site, and know what to do in the event they are encountered.
